... as also "kwm00re" wrote, the City Centre Budget Hotel is rather a hostel, which did not bother us, as we already knew about the shared bathrooms and kitchen before. The hotel has a great location in Little Collins Street - you always stay just around the corner! ;)
Our cosy room in the 2nd floor was a little small, but clean. There was a fan (no AC), TV, fridge, little table, two chairs, mirror, FREE: WiFi, PC, Printer (!!). The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, they sell cold drinks at the reception and if wanted also keep your lugguage after checking out. Due to the absence of an AC (which we were not missing, even in the heat of january) we were leaving our window open 24 hours. Our room was facing the road - for some kind of reason the garbage collection was coming by every night (!) waking us up. As we both do not have problems with sleep (we only have problems with getting up), this did not bother us too much - but maybe try to get a room facing on the inner courtyard of the hotel.
The hotel also offers an awesome rooftop-terrace which was not used by other guests, while we stayed there - it's a perfect place for nice breaky, sundowner or a beer when the moon has risen. Though there are sunshades provided it gets pretty hod during the day. Also you can hang up your laundry (coin washers provided) on the rooftop terrace. The shared kitchen which is located on the roof looked a bit chubby to us, we though only used the microwave once, and usually had our meals outside the hotel.
However we would come here, if we once travel to Melbourne on a budget again!
